An Italian Expedition to Albania Campaign Medal; Type 1

An Italian Expedition to Albania Campaign Medal; Type 1 - Bronze, 33 mm, original ribbon, light contact, near extremely fine.Footnote: The medal was instituted on March 7, 1940, to be awarded to military and civilian participants in the Italian occupation of Albania. By 1939, Italy dominated all aspects of Albania life but in the minds of Mussolini and Ciano, German triumphs in Austria and Czechoslovakia demanded an Italian response. This came in the form of the invasion of Albania by an overwhelming Italian force that met no resistance and suffered negligible casualties, the Italians having bribed the tribal chieftains in advance. The Roman numeral "XVII"’ (17) refers to the number of years of fascist rule in Italy.
